Another small complex of thunderstorm activity has developed across the high plains overnight and is west of the area this morning. Odds will keep this activity well to our west but just remain aware that we’ll need to keep a slight chance in the forecast for the next hour or two for south-central Oklahoma until the system clears the region. Again, most of this will stay across the far western and southwestern part of the state but may migrate slightly eastward over the next few hours.
This morning our lows will be in the 60s with highs moving into the mid or upper 80s along with south winds from 10 to 15 mph. Model projections seem to support only a minor increase in dew point temps today across eastern Oklahoma today but a more robust addition will occur Saturday and more so Sunday.
Temperatures move back into the lower 90s this weekend with higher heat index values by Sunday and Monday and due to the influx of low level moisture. Gusty south winds will also develop this weekend and remain into most of next week due to deeper low pressure to our northwest.
Monday through Wednesday of next week features highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s, breezy and humid conditions, and a chance of storms by the middle of the week as a powerful upper level system moves into the northern high plains with a surface front slipping southward into the state sometime Tuesday or Wednesday before stalling. While the best upper level support will remain well north of the area, plenty of surface instability and potential energy will allow for a mention of severe storms. This front may slide more southward around Thursday or Friday. The upper level pattern also supports more northwest flow for later next week into next weekend. This will more than likely bring storms across the state periodically.
Thanks for reading the Friday morning weather discussion and blog.
Have a super great day!
